    Is Green Fitness Studio legit?

    So I was looking for gyms that teach that aren't going to kill my wallet, and living in NYC, it's really hard nowadays. So I found this one gym that's rather affordable called Green Fitness Studio located in 232 Varet St in Brooklyn, and next week when I'm off; I was planning on actually take a look at it and see what they got.

    But before I go there next week, I wanted to ask: for people who are in the area and have been to the gym/heard of the gym, what are your experiences and is it a good gym to learn Muay Thai or should I keep looking? If so, do you have any recommendations that are worth looking into?

    I attend a weekly Judo-Aikido class that has an emphasis on the Aikido perspective class attended mainly by ex-Judoka's with about 30 years on the mats each.
    It is taught by an instructor with about 40 years in both Judo and Aikido, who is also a professional physical therapist.
    I hate it.
    I really hate it.
    They don't do anything like I would do it,
    (Except occasional good Judo distinctions).
    And nobody in it has any reason to care about anything I have to say.
    I am basically a white belt in that class in the context of that material.
    Which is exactly why I attend every week.
    Insisting on environments that suit our own confirmation bias may not be the best way to ward off dementia or learn.

    So they have a Renzo purple belt teaching BJJ and a MT instructor who has a verifiable pro fight record, is a certified ref and has produced some good fighters.

    Sounds good to me. If that's what you are looking for and it is convenient to your location, try it out.
